Inter linked midfielder Arturo Vidal discussed his future, the return to training and the restart of the season in an interview with Barcelona earlier today.

“It was exciting to come back after what happened. With teammates, there was a lot of happiness and a lot of conversation at a distance, trying to understand if each one of us has had the virus.”

The 33-year-old Chilean midfielder then discussed important it was for the squad to come together for the remaining games of the season.

“For us it is very important that Luis and the other injured players recover, because it will be two intense months with many games to play in a short space of time. We need to be at 100% for the two competitions we have left.”

The former Juventus and Bayern Munich midfielder commented on how it will feel to play games behind closed doors.

“I like to connect with the public, it feels good and it gives me great joy and enthusiasm, but we have to adapt and take advantage of all the training sessions we’ve had to achieve our goals.”

Vidal spoke about the remaining 11 league games of the season.

“These 11 games are going to be 11 finals, we are all clear about that, and that they will be very difficult. We have to trust ourselves, we have to think about winning and also doing it in the best way.”

Finally, Vidal spoke about how it would feel to win a 9th consecutive league title in his career.

“It would be a dream to win nine leagues in a row, because achieving a record with that many titles is very difficult. I still feel good and will continue fighting and winning trophies. Few players in history have done this and I’m proud. I hope to win the 9th here with Barça.”

Vidal has made 31 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 1414 minutes. In that time, he has scored six goals and provided three assists, earning more consistent playing time after the arrival of coach Quique Setién. The player has been heavily wanted by coach Antonio Conte for some time now, although the club’s management are less keen on the idea.
